West Vancouver has been shaped by a geography of rugged peaks dropping to serene waterfront. Both the community and the lifestyle are informed by sandy beaches, pebbled coves and forested cliffs that watch over a stunning seascape. Its villages have distinct character, from the big brands of Park Royal, to the sidewalk caf├ęs and independent boutiques of Ambleside, to the restaurants and artisanal grocers of Dundarave. Seaside parks dot its coastline, connected by a Seawalk where locals jog and walk their dogs. Residents are enthusiastic skiers, sailors, golfers, hikers and cyclists. They enjoy nothing more than a day in the mountains or a weekend on the water followed by great meals shared with good friends, surrounded by spectacular views.
